And I will say that you should try to make the emails visually attractive. Put color in, with photos, maybe a logo for your blog, artwork, etc. Everyone likes to read something more than a page of black lines.
I’m usually attracted to an email list if I know the person and have previously read some of their work. I only have about half a dozen people I signed up for an email from. A few are friends of church that have small designing businesses, and the others are writers.
What you want to write about depends on what you’re trying to…[Read more]
This is an awesome idea! For some reason it seems like breaking-cliche for the writers to be the ones that are shunned and looked down on.
Sam has a point about how we technically could call dreaming irrational, since ration is logic, and dreaming is most usually not logic. But I defend dreaming with everything I’ve got.…[Read more]
So, in my new book, Firefly Town, there is a younger teenager, Josh, who’s deaf. He communicates with ASL, American Sign Language. The second main character, Clay, is hearing, but learned ASL to talk with him. Felicity, the MC, when she comes into town, meets Josh. She knows a few signs, from a deaf girl at college, and learns some more.
I know a…[Read more]
I couldn’t see. The great clouds had rolled in, blocking the silver light. My hands wandered blindly in front of me, grasping at shadows. I had lost the road. I had lost my way.
I had lost everything.
I remembered the whisper breathed to me just before I left.
“When the sun sets, walk by the light of the moon.”
I fell to my knees, cover…[Read more]
She really is. Here’s another one.
“God’s already written it you know. The story of your life. To the end. He knows the plans he has for you. They’re good plans; not evil. To give you a future, and a hope.”
XD XD Life goals… I actually wrote a flash fiction based off that quote. Could I put it up in this thread, or would that be…[Read more]
Be prepared for a barrage of quotes. Brace yourselves!…
“Life is the messy bits” – Letters to Juliet
“When the sun sets, walk by the light of the moon.” – Yours Truly
“A man can be a man— well and good. A son can be a son— even better. But such they are without their choice, from the moment they are born. A king must be something more. A kin…[Read more]
@sam-kowal *looks down menacingly* And what have you been doing to earn a punishment?
Doesn’t matter, you can tell me after you’ve had your dues.
You, Sam Kowal, are sentenced to three days of labor in my ice cream factory. There are three rules.
1. You must have ice cream samples as often as you like.
2. You must work at exactly the pace that…[Read more]
Hey Guys! So, a while ago I was here telling about my sister Gladys Joy. Even before that I was telling about my aunt and uncle who were waiting to see if the state agree they could do foster-parenting. I can’t remember how much I’ve shared, so I’m just gonna do a quick re-cap of sorts, possibly with things I already told you, hopefully mostly new…[Read more]
“I got to, ‘Just as he drew his sword…’. Then the ink ran out.”
“The letters blurred, shifting and shaping together into one word. Run.”
“You uncap the ink bottle… and nothing happens. It strikes you as odd. Most days the bottle spouts fire or releases fairies.”
@dekreel It’s a… nice whip. Of… licorice. And cotton candy.
@epicaddie2 Oh yes, I am very nicely ignoring it. But you, young lady, for your involvement in this travesty of supreme rudeness… are sentenced to one year of doing nothing but reading, writing, and eating chocolate. It’s a harsh punishment I know. Call me cruel and heartless, yes.…[Read more]
My thread, my thread… what has happened? *wails* *grins because I don’t care cause y’all are awesome*
@eepicaddie2 You’re a ranger, right? Whip these people and dragons in line, please. I mean, not literally whip, but yeah.
@dragon-snapper I don’t even own a beanbag, fire retardant or not, so…
